The history of hip-hop is huge and very rich. Since its inception, a lot of men and women forged the sound of this genre that in the XXI century continues to introduce us to great artists, but if we have to talk about one of the names that completely marked the rhymes in the 90s, we should definitely mention The Notorious BIG Well, in a matter of a few years, he became a true legend.
From one moment to the next, and thanks to his talent, Christopher Wallace –As it was actually called– went from selling drugs on the streets of New York to being one of the most important rappers of his generation. However, his story ended tragically, because unfortunately a few days after releasing his second studio album, on March 9, 1997 he died at the age of 24 after being shot while leaving an event in Los Angeles.

Since then, The Notorious BIG became a legend in every sense of the word, although his story is still extremely interesting because to date there is no culprit for his death.

Although out there, Netflix premiered in 2018 a series on the case of the murders of the Brooklyn rapper and Tupac Shakur.
